the name thread

post #1 of 76
Thread Starter 
There's got to be a few of us left still unsure on names. I thought it would be nice to have a thread where we just throw out names, ask opinions, or just complain why or partners don't agree.

Okay so I'd love to call my girl Ava Jolie. But dh says Ava is way too common. (and it is, though I don't know a single one) So he's only up for the Jolie part. Others I like is Keira, and Meadow. Dh thinks Meadow is too hippy.

What names are you working on?

First name will be Sawyer but middle name is the big problem and no matter what middle name we give him no one will be happy

I really like Sawyer, that's a good start. You're looking for a Christian middle name, right?

We are thinking of carrying on family names...we did that with both previous children.

So as we are going through family names, here are some of our choices:

Burleigh
Zeno
Evie
Eli Hugh

non-family names:

Ozma
Tirzah
Crickett

Is Crickett too out there (or whatever you want to call it)?

We are having a girl and have no idea what her name will be. We like the idea of the name having a "y" in it somewhere. Currently on our list: Rory, Avery, Ilyana, Addyson and Bailey. That is just a mish-mash of ideas...we are definitely open to suggestions!

We've not even started - every time I bring it up we get distracted with other thoughts. I do have a running list going and figure we'll eventually pick out a couple names (hopefully we'll agree) and then wait and see which one fits when we meet the little one.

My fear is that birth will come and do and we'll still not have gotten around to it.

I just love Evie. I picture a pretty girl with a little spunk.

I just love Evie. I picture a pretty girl with a little spunk. Crickett is too out there for me, but maybe as a middle name.

I really love Rory. Can you type out how to pronounce Ilyana? I'm really bad at that.

Care to share that name? My dh is stuck on Memphis or Montana for the middle name. If it has to be an M I'd go for Meadow.

Evie is my mother's first name....its not the EE-VEE pronounciation, but the EH-VEE way. I hope that makes since. The reason I explain is that my dsd is Olivia, but everyone calls her Livi.

Does anyone think they rhyme too much? or just too close in sound to each other? I don't want to take away from dsd, but I would kind of like to honor my mother by using her name. She goes by her middle name, Dorene.

I am still haven't picked a name. I have a list of mostly girl names, because I think that I am having a girl. I won't know for sure until the baby is born. I have had this same list for awhile and haven't worked on it for quite some time. I don't like most baby name books. My mom is getting me a book called Best Exotic Baby Names for my birthday in a couple weeks. I can't wait to read it and start working on my list some more.

Girl Names:
Arwyn Mystere
Kalina Soleil
Kalina Violet
Araya Rose
Satia Emavere
Adria
Vera


Boy Names:
Emrys Rune
Gavesha
Merlin

Names are seriously sucking over here... at least every second day I ask about them...

Here is where we got today with the convo.

DD has her first name "B" and then her first middle name "M" and then because we weren't married and a little bit I wanted that security until we were she had my maiden name "M" and his last name "B" as two seperate (not hypenated) last names... So she looks like this "B""M""M""B". Our goal was always to put my maiden name into the second middle spot once we were married. We are now but noone can really answer my question on how to do it at vital statistics... they all give me different conflicting answers.

DH said at first he wanted two middle names for his children... then he took that back... But he has two middles, our DD will/has two middles and I've considered putting my maiden as a second middle as well.

Now we are onto this child. We've come to the conclusion (I was for and he was against) that they were all going to have two middles now as to not feel left out.. But we didn't know whether we should put my maiden as the second middle for all the children.... *sigh* naming is just too hard.

So what we HAVE decided is NO we are not going to put the second middle as my maiden, YES they all will have two middles and YES the second middle of each child will be a cherished family name.

We aren't really discussing names even though on here I know it wouldn't be as big of a deal but I still don't want to hear the I don't like that... lol I'll let it be "behind my back" after the child is born. (this is how hubby's aunts described it....

We have a pretty good possibility for our girl first name and we KNOW what her second middle will be... the first middle will be something we both like and that flows well

For the boy we have NO CLUE on the first name but pretty much have both the middle names picked out.

Ok that was long and winded... Oh and we aren't using the boy "first" name from last time (the middles are from last time) only because it's populated into a huge girls name and our families and friends gave us so much grief over it. I still guiltly love it and DH didn't when DD was born and now he does like it too but alas we decided we won't use it unless there really is NO OTHER OPTION... and well we can come up with a couple others we kinda like.

He wants his middle name which is Lynn and to me it is a girls name and not biblical and not something i will name our son.

We're having a boy, and although we had a girls name picked out, we had no boys name ideas (except for the one my BFF just used for her son!). So we have been through the following:

Nathaniel David
Andrew Gregory

Now we like Matthew, but even though it fits well in the family names, I'm not that fond of it. We are Jewish, and I can't help but think of the 12 apostles when I say it...oy vey. So, Matthew WHAT is the question. We like:

Matthew David (makes an easy Hebrew name)
Matthew Brian or Bryant (would love a B name, since M starts DH's name)

I LOVED most all of the girls names you all have mentioned, so I'll be no help there...

NeKisha-I really like the name Evie.
Morganstar-Cassie June is a great name and I think it sounds good with Addi. Emerson sounds close to Addison to me.
EugeneMom-I like Avery.
Ahimsa-I like Kalina Soleil.

My new little niece is Rory Dakota Lynn. But her uncle likes to call her "Poppin' Fresh". She's a sturdy girl - but she's also opinionated and alert and smiley.
